The Gender Equity Resource Center offers educational opportunities through a variety of staff and student led workshops. Workshops for campus organizations and departments are free, though we ask you submit workshop requests at least two weeks in advance. The earlier we recieve a request the more likely we will be able to accommodate your requested dates. Workshop requests from off-campus organizations will be considered, though availability may be restricted, and will only be presented for a fee.
